Isaiah 11:1-10New International Version (NIV)

The Branch From Jesse

11 A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;
    from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.

2 The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—
    the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
    the Spirit of counsel and of might,
    the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord—

3 and he will delight in the fear of the Lord.
He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes,
    or decide by what he hears with his ears;

4 but with righteousness he will judge the needy,
    with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth.
He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth;
    with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked.

5 Righteousness will be his belt
    and faithfulness the sash around his waist.

6 The wolf will live with the lamb,
    the leopard will lie down with the goat,
the calf and the lion and the yearling together;
    and a little child will lead them.

7 The cow will feed with the bear,
    their young will lie down together,
    and the lion will eat straw like the ox.

8 The infant will play near the cobra’s den,
    and the young child will put its hand into the viper’s nest.

9 They will neither harm nor destroy
    on all my holy mountain,
for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord
    as the waters cover the sea.

10 In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his resting place will be glorious.

Until next time...

  1. Okay, so please, this is giving me the "okay" to have gingerbread at breakfast, right RJ?? Oh, I am so all over this one. I will be making that recipe for my loved ones during the holidays.
    Love these posts RJ... really do.

  2. I love the recipe and that reading from Issiah. I'm going to have to try these!

  3. I love your advent scrapbook. I've been checking in every day and this one is my favourite so far - the pumpkin pancakes sound delicious. I love how you have managed to combine art, getting ready for Christmas, and blogging all rolled into one. Good for you.
